Learning about Christian faith and growing in Christian faith is about more than what we believe. It is also about the ways in which we pray and develop our relationship with God, about the way we live our lives and about living in God’s vision for the Church and for the world.
This six-week course is about the way we behave as well as what we believe. So how should Christians behave and how should we live? This part of Pilgrim, co-authored by the new Bishop of Oxford, explores that question through one of the core texts of the Christian faith: The Beatitudes in Mathew’s Gospel and explores the Christian vision for the world, including openness to God, thirsting for what is right, peace making and living as citizens of God’s Kingdom.
- Do you want to know about the basics of the faith?
- Ever find yourself wondering why we do things a certain way in church?
- Do you want the chance to ask questions about basic faith matters in a relaxed and informal setting where no question is too simple?

Then this course is for you! The course runs for ten sessions either side of Easter and is for all ages exploring amongst other things The Bible, Prayer, and the Sacraments.
